RR will be facing KKR at Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai after losing their previous encounter to Gujarat Titans by 37 runs. Rajasthan have done well in this tournament so far and with the addition of Trent Boult in their Playing XI they are expected to become an even more solid side in this tournament.

Jos Buttler's form with the bat has been crucial for the success of RR throughout this season and he might be player to watch out for in this game as well. Shimron Hetmyer has striked well at death overs and along with him in bowling department Chahal and Ashwin are expected to play a key role in middle overs for their side.

KKR after starting the IPL 2022 tournament very well have lost two back-to-back games against DC and SRH unfortunately. Varun Chakravarthy's mystery spin has been exposed to the opponent teams and him leaking too many runs has been a big problem in those two matches.

KKR has been relying heavily on players like Andre Russell, Sunil Narine to perform well while players like Venkatesh Iyer hasn't performed to his expectations and that has been hurting KKR's chances to win a game in this IPL season. KKR have won 3 out of 6 games in IPL 2022 and a loss for them might haunt their chances of entering the playoffs in this IPL season.
